Trinity University Featured in Princeton Review’s 2011 Edition of The Best 373 Colleges


SAN ANTONIO –- Trinity University has been included in the Princeton Review’s 2011 edition of The Best 373 Colleges, an annual guide published by the education services company.


The college guide features about 15 percent of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges.  It contains detailed profiles of the colleges based on The Princeton Review's surveys of students attending the colleges. Among the factors included in the survey were academics, admissions selectivity, financial aid, and commitment to environmentally related policies.


“Our choices are based on institutional data we collect about schools, our visits to schools over the years, feedback we gather from students attending the schools, and the opinions of our staff and our 28-member National College Counselor Advisory Board.  We also work to keep a wide representation of colleges in the book by region, size, selectivity, and character,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice president of publishing and author of The Best 373 Colleges.


In a section titled “Students Say,” several of Trinity’s attributes were highlighted, including:


  • the University’s science programs

  • a communications department with a radio station and television studio

  • a diverse student population

  • small classes

  • the study abroad program


The Princeton Review college guide also features rankings on various aspects of campus life. Trinity was included in the list titled “Dorms Like Palaces.” In addition the University was noted for “great computer facilities” and a “great library.”


The Princeton Review  has helped students achieve their higher education goals for more than 28 years through college and graduate school test preparation and tutoring.  The Princeton Review also partners with schools and guidance counselors throughout the U.S. to assist in college readiness, test preparation and career planning services, helping more students pursue postsecondary education.  The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University. Schools do not pay fees to be included in the Review.


Trinity University, founded in 1869, is one of the nation’s top private undergraduate institutions. Noted for its superior academic quality, outstanding faculty, and exceptional academic and residential resources, Trinity is committed to the intellectual, civic, and professional preparation of its students.
